As Hillary Clinton begins her 2016 campaign, one of the big questions around her is the size and shape of her base. How will her supporters compare with those of President Barack Obama or her husband, former President Bill Clinton?

The number of votes cast in Ferguson's election Tuesday more than tripled from the April 2012 election, when the same three seats were on the line. There were about 3,900 votes cast on Tuesday in Ferguson, compared with about 1,100 three years ago.

Introduction
I'm a married father of two (a girl and a boy) who still misses Motown, particularly the Tigers and Red Wings. When I'm not working I am trying to herd children, making time to actually hang out with my wife or play hockey.
